This Truss Bridge has an exact total of one hundred coffee stir sticks or as today's youngsters might call them (10^2 lolly sticks).

Click the pics if you want to count sticks yourself.. The constructs are identically symmetric.

16 struts per segment for a stable segment not counting flooring times the number of segments. This is of course without doubling up on the struts.

Your question isn't meaningful without more information.

Think about it.

How big will it be.

Construction

Wastage

Really, popsicle sticks are very cheap. If you need more buy more.
